Qualcomm Aqstic™ Hi-Fi DAC

The Qualcomm Aqstic Hi-Fi DAC (AQT1000) combines the best of both worlds in performance and power consumption—it’s focused on delivering the most authentic sound and most faithful reproduction of a musician’s recording you can hear on your smartphone and external Hi-Fi USB Type-C dongles and DACs. Because of the more simplistic DAC-only design, the AQT1000 can achieve an ultra-low THD+N—providing the audio purist with an uncolored listening experience. And it supports up to 384kHz/32bit PCM and Native DSD playback for enjoying content created for SACD (Super Audio CD) files.
